Iran: Proxies in Lebanon, Gaza will respond with ‘hellfire’ to Israeli attacks

Categories: News

Iran will continue supplying high-precision missiles to its proxies in Lebanon and Gaza so they would be able to respond to Israel’s “acts of stupidity with hellfire” said the country’s Supreme National Security Council Secretary Ali Shamkhani on Tuesday.

The remarks come in the wake of a massive aerial bombardment launched by Israel Air Force on Iranian targets in Syria last Monday, which came in response to the surface-to-surface rocket launched at Israeli territory by Iranian Quds Force and intercepted by the Iron Dome a day earlier.

“There is no greater shame to the Zionist entity, which claims to have superior intelligence capabilities, than the fact that tunnels—hundreds of kilometers long—had been dug under this entity’s nose, and the fact that one of their ministers turned an Iranian spy,” he said referring to former minister Gonen Segev, who was found guilty of spying on Israel for Iran and will serve 11 years in prison.

 

Speaking at the National Conference on Space Technologies, Shamkhani added that Iran would keep working to improve the accuracy of its missiles arsenal despite the international pressure, but has no plans to increase their range.

“Iran has no scientific or operational restriction for increasing the range of its military missiles, but based on its defensive doctrine, it is continuously working on increasing the precision of the missiles,” Shamkhani said.
